Thank you for agreeing to share your knowledge and perspectives with archivists and students from around the country via a graduate student poster presentation at ARCHIVES 2017! Following is some information that will be useful to you as you develop your poster and plan your meeting schedule.
Registration and the full conference schedule will be available on April 3 via the conference website under the PROGRAM tab. Poster presenters are required to register for the conference.
WHEN TO BE THERE
Posters that have been reviewed and accepted by the 2017 Student Program Subcommittee will be displayed during the peak hours of the conference in the Exhibit Hall. Details on exact location and setup/teardown times will be forthcoming.
Presenters are expected to be with their posters to discuss them with viewers during the following times:
You should also feel free to stand by your poster during other Exhibit Hall hours and to make appointments with individuals to discuss the work represented by your poster.
Setup and dismantling / removal of your poster are your responsibility. You may set up your poster in the Exhibit Hall of the Oregon Convention Center on Thursday, July 28, between 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm. All graduate student posters must be fully set by 4:30 pm on Thursday. Posters will be on display throughout Exhibit Hall hours (Thursday, July 28, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm, and Friday, August 5, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm). Posters must be dismantled by 5:00 pm on Friday. Posters remaining after this time will be kept at the Onsite Registration for pickup no later than 9:00 am on Saturday. After this time they will be discarded by the conference staff.
Poster presenters are responsible for their own poster construction costs. However, the Conference Office will provide the following standard materials:
Due to the growing number of posters presented in the Exhibit Hall, we are experimenting with the display setup. Please do not print your poster on foam core. This will not affix to the cork boards.
You may display supplementary material that is relevant to your presentation (including business cards), but the Conference Office will not store or secure it for you and we are unable to provide tables for poster presentations. Laptops are permitted, but cannot be secured. No outlets or Internet connections beyond the convention center wi-fi will be available.
Following are some general tips that you may wish to consider as you prepare your poster presentation:
